The appearance is classy and according to my friend, these shoes are very durable. The price is a bit expensive because the shoes are quality made. You will get what you paid for so; Sebago Shoes are priced just right.

A Night Stay at Motel 6 at St Robert, Missouri

Our travel and road trip for this year ended last October when we traveled to Missouri as far as Kansas City. It was only a week but, we crossed 6 states: Florida, Georgia, Tennesse, Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri. It was fun and exciting travel and since we had no hotel reservations, we only stopped when we were tired and ready to hit the bed. One of the unexpected places that we checked in was this Motel 6. We had to find a place to sleep for it was already 11:30 at night so; we saw this along the highway. It was our first time to sleep in a motel 6 but, this place is not bad at all. It was newly renovated, 3-storey, clean and nearby to restaurants. The location is just perfect.

What matters for me is the cleanliness and the sheets should smell good. The staffs are friendly and courteous. The price was a bit high for this type of motel/hotel but, we sleep good for the night. Here is the address: Motel 6 545 Highway Z on the I-44 at Missouri Avenue, Exit #161 in St Robert MO 65584.

Victoria Soto: A Teacher's Sacrifice

Young, vibrant, pretty and full of life, she loves the color green, she likes snow and loves Christmas. According to the news, Victoria Soto said to the children before she was shot, "To all my students, I love you."
Who would ever forget this iconic photo? The horrific and unspeakable tragedy happened last Friday in Newtown, Connecticut will forever leaves a painful mark in our hearts and minds. Believe it or not, I was crying the whole time watching the news unfolded. Seeing her talking to the police officer crying and clasping her hands ... she was praying and hoping ... with tearful eyes, I was  praying as well. If it was her child, I was hoping that she will be re-united. That her day will end up alright.
The next day, I learned from the news that she was there looking for her sister who is a first grade teacher. Her sister is Victoria Soto and she died as a hero protecting her students from the evil in disguise.  Victoria Soto saves some innocent lives that day.
We may never know the real reason why this horrible tragedy happen in a school ... in a quiet neighborhood of good and descent people. We may seek answers as to the why and how but, will never find the truth because the killer is dead.
This tragic incident left us with complex issues to resolve. Are we going to blame the mother who collected high powered guns? Is this a mental issue? Do we need to polish gun laws control? Do we need to blame the violent video games in the market today? Do we need to improve the security system in the school? Is there a need to hire a security guard or police officer on standby in the school?
This tragic event is truly complex. Before we blame this to anyone, let us examine ourselves first. Am I a good parent? Did I talk to my child lately?

Love your children and if they need help, do not hesitate to ask help. 

May God bless us all.

Apple iPod Touch 5th Gen: Brilliant Gadget

I bought an Apple iPod Touch awhile back and I did not enjoy using it so; I gave it to my brother. Besides, I have an iPad2 already so; I can do so much more with it such as music download and Social Media purposes. I don't miss it a bit! Now, iPod Touch comes up with 5th Generation and I am contemplating to buy or not. What caught my attention is the available color aside from it's brilliance of course. I prefer yellow and pink ... I was hoping to get a yellow-green or peach but, they don't have it.
Right now, Apple iPod Touch 5th Gen is on sale in most stores in the US ... like $20 lower if I buy it in The good thing if I buy it in Apple, I will get free engraving and free shipping until December 21. During Black Friday, offers discount but, I was hesitant to order at that time. Too bad, if I order this gadget anytime this week, I will not get any discount. Come what may ... I might or I may not buy it.

Have Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish Pies for the Holiday

This post brought to you by Mrs. Smith's. All opinions are 100% mine. Last Friday, I received 5 Free Coupons of MRS. SMITH'S® Deep Dish pies and a gift card of Williams-Sonoma worth $50. I went to Wal-Mart Supercenter but, they run out of stocks. Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish pies must be "sought-after" for the holiday right? I thought so too. 
We spent about half an hour to find the signature deep dish pies and we finally saw the product at the frozen aisle in Publix. There's only two available pies: the Signature Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce and Signature Deep Dish Cherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce. Apple Pie is my favorite so; yesterday, I baked the delicious signature deep dish dutch Apple Pie with caramel sauce.

After baking, I sprinkled the raisins at the top and soaked the pies with caramel sauce. It tasted heavenly and my husband became a new fan of Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish pies. I think the Apple Pie will be my favorite in Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish pies.

The Signature Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce is a beautiful pie already so; I simply customized it by adding raisins to give a texture on every bite. The caramel sauce is sweet but not overpowering. You should try it.

Amish Store:Farm Oaks Produce Near Keytesville Missouri

When hubby and I traveled to Missouri, we noticed that they have road signs of buggy. It is a common road sign in Amish country. I was in great awe upon seeing the sign because it would mean, I can now see a real Amish (face-to-face). Few years back, I saw a movie about Amish and I admire their way of life. My brother-in-law told us about the Amish store in nearby town. The picture below is the first Amish Store that I ever went to.

Amish people are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. They only marry the person within the faith. Ordnung is the rule of their church and must be observed by every member. The rules cover most aspects of day-to-day living such as limitations on the use of power-line electricity, telephones and automobiles as well as clothing. Most members do not accept government assistance such as Social Security. They have their own church, their own school and their own way of life.

Before we arrived the home of my brother-in-law, hubby and I were lost. We drove to a dirt road and we can't find our way. We were lost in the middle of nowhere. We saw plain houses with buggy parked outside their property. We don't see anybody .... not a single soul. We drove around the area ( really lost our way) for 45 minutes or so. Then, we saw a car finally... and we asked for direction to Lake Nihai in Keytesville where my brother in-law lives.

Anyway, back to Amish Store … hubby bought some cheeses. My sisters-in-law bought some Amish baked foods and chips while I have caramel popcorn. The store is full and most of their products and produce are from the Amish community.  The  salesladies were young Amish and they were wearing their traditional clothing. They were pretty and friendly. I enjoyed my little shopping in the Amish store.

Thoughts on Christmas

How are you? Yesterday, hubby and I did some errands. We went to the mall and did some shopping for the front yard and the gazebo Christmas ornaments. I found a musical ornament and hubby bought a candy cane decor. It's 19 days before Christmas but, we are still adding Christmas decoration every day. We are enjoying the spirit of Christmas. How about you? I bet, you feel the same way too huh?

Anyway, we had lunch at Longhorn Steak House and as we head home, I took a picture of this beautiful sunset. Nature is amazing! We had a nice weather here in Florida but, halfway around the globe, the weather has brought so much pain and anguish to hundreds of families who lost members of their family. A lot of families in the Philippines lost their homes from the flashflood brought by Storm Pablo (Bopha). As I was staring at the sunset, my thought goes out to the victims and survivors of the flashflood in the Philippines. This Christmas, please ... let us not forget them. Christmas is giving. If there is a way that you can help them, please do so. Most of all, say a little prayer for the survivors ... that they may find strength amidst all these trials.

How to Get Ready for Your First Date

Has it been a long time since you have been on a date because you have been married for 10, 20, or even 40 years? Do you want to find your next true love or do you want to find a friend you can spend the rest of your retirement years with? No matter what your reason is for getting back in the dating scene, you should head over to  to browse through the list of singles that are your own age. It's easy to get back in the dating scene again, since you can browse through thousands of singles online. If you have been talking to someone online and you're ready to go on your first date in what seems like a lifetime, then you need to know how you should prepare yourself.
Go Shopping for a New Outfit
If you're concerned with wanting to make a good impression on your first date, then you should head to the shopping mall to pick out a new outfit. If you haven't bought clothes for a long time or all the clothes you have are business suits, then it's time to give yourself a minor makeover. You don't have to go all out when you buy your new outfit to wear on your first date, but you should look nice. Choose something you'll be comfortable wearing so you'll look and feel more confident during the date. You shouldn't have to dress to impress your first date because you aren't dating a young adult where all they care about is how they look. You know you look good, so flaunt what you have by wearing a nice outfit.
Inform a Friend or Family Member What You'll Be Doing
It's always a good thing to let one or two close friends or family members know where you'll be going on your first date. You never know who you'll end up meeting from the internet so you need to keep your safety and well-being in mind at all times. You should meet in a public place until you both are comfortable enough to spending time in a private setting. Even though it sounds juvenile by letting others know where you're going and who you're going to be with on your first date, you need to stay safe. Just don't forget to have a fun time when you go out on your first date!

Storage Solution

Do you want to improve the efficiency and reliability of your data back up? Are you looking for a different storage experience?

There are backup programs that only back up user files. It is not comprehensive. Boot information such as those in use at the time of the backup may not be saved on some operating systems. If something crashes, not all files will be saved. Non-software type files can usually be backed up with file-based backup software. This is the preferred back up by many because file-based backup usually saves more since they never copy unused space. Creating a bit-identical disk image is one way to ensure the system backup will be exactly as the original. There are many commercial imaging software available in the market today and most of them are user-friendly and automatic but, may not create bit-identical images. These programs have the same advantages but, restoring to partitions of a different size may not put files on the same exact sector. That’s a problem for those who are not computer savvy.

Check out the disk backup at Nexsan. If you are looking for a Back up and Recovery solution, Nexsan has built-in features to help protect and recover all the data.

He already has a sheepskin steering wheel cover so; I thought he might like to have the seat cover to match it with.

Lovely and Colorful Mums

Aren't they gorgeous? These type of plants in a nice planter would have cost much here in Florida but, in Missouri, this is only $14. A month ago, hubby and I had a very exciting one week road trip. The farthest we traveled was Kansas Missouri. When we were in the town of Marceline, we stopped by the Dreaming Tree of Walt Disney. Stayed for two nights by this awesome place in Lake Nehai in Keytesville. Nearby these places is Brooksfield  where the Amish Store is located. They have these beautiful mums displayed outside their store. I really wanted to see a real Amish and while we were there, two young and pretty Amish salesladies were there manning the store. Missouri is a gorgeous state with cool weather too since we went there in October, a sweater and boots would be a comfy attire to wear.

I took several photos of these lovely and colorful mums ... such pretty flowers huh? They are such delightful to the eyes. Do you have mums in your garden? I have two and I hope it will survive for next year. Thanks for stopping by.

My Mug Collection: Gateway Arch

I always like to collect mugs with unique design, fascinating shapes and interesting color-combination. I don't usually just buy for a keepsake but, I always look for something different to bring home with me. We visited the Gateway Arch in Saint Louis, Missouri a month ago and I wander inside the Museum Store. I was looking to buy a mug with Gateway Arch name on it and I found this.

This mug is glossy, has the Gateway Arch skyline print and worth $8.95 only (cheaper than Disney mugs). I bought it inside the Museum Store in Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. It is worth the money for it is durable and the shape is like an oval which is not the typical mug that we often see in the souvenir store. This mug is the latest addition of my collection and I am a happy camper.

American Express Rewards Points

Do you have an American Express Credit Card? Nowadays, most companies offer rewards program and loyalty rewards to their members and you should sign up for all of it. If you have AMEX, there are 3 ways to earn the rewards and you should take note of these: 3X points when you use AMEX to purchase airline tickets; 2X when you use AMEX for groceries, gas, and in the supermarket; 1 pt for other purchases.

If you plan to use your points, I suggest that you exchange it with Restaurant Gift Card to get the points at high value. When you exchange it with AMEX GC worth $100 , you need to have 15,000 points. That's not a good deal. If you love to dine out, get the Restaurant GC instead. For your 2,500 points that is equivalent to $25. See the difference? You can also change your points to air miles. Check it out!

Sliced Swiss Cheese

Just the other day, I posted a picture of a glass of red wine, prosciutto, sliced strawberry and cheese, my Italian snacks for the day. Though I am not a big fan of eating cheese, there are certain types of cheeses that I craved for once in a while. When it comes to snacking a swiss burger, I prefer the sliced swiss cheese. I like to savor the cheese that melts in a sandwich. Do you like quesadilla? OMG! That is so yummy. When I was working in a gaming establishment in Mississippi, we have a personal chef in our break room. We were served with free hot lunches. Oh I miss that. When the chef saw me in queue, she knew that I want more cheese in my sandwich. She even gave me a lecture on what type of cheeses is best for certain foods. We have variety of cheeses to choose from. Half of it, I can't even remember LOL. Swiss cheese is easy to recall because it became my favorite from then on.
In our grocery list, Sargento swiss cheese is in it and I personally like the cheese in this brand. Did you know that this company is a family owned business? "Sargento is a family-owned cheese company dedicated to enhancing long-term stakeholder value. Sustained by an insatiable winning spirit, we are guided by our faith in God" , and these statements of values and purpose of the company made me more loyal to their products. Who wouldn't anyway?
How about you? If you are planning to make a meal, check out the recipes with Swiss cheese in the link provided above. The following recipes are the best: Baby Swiss Monte Cristo, Bacon Chive and Cheese, Asparagus Quiche, Alfredo Potatoes, and Baked Onion Soups. For more information, visit the link today. Have fun and enjoy your meal.

Women's Deluxe Hooded Gown Costume

Few weeks ago, I received this beautiful costume for free. You read it right! I was given the opportunity to choose one costume that I like in exchange of an honest review. That's an easy task. You know why? From shipping, packaging, and quality of the product, I am very satisfied. I was so thrilled when I put it on and the fit is just perfect. I can't control my excitement when I open the package because the costume is beautiful and the color combination is perfect for Halloween.
I got this product from a company called Wholesale Halloween Costumes and if you click the link, you will discover that this is actually a one-stop store for costumes. You name it and they have it! If you are looking for costumes, masks, wigs, hats, props and decorations for any occasion, you should check them out first. If it is a hard-to-find costume and you can't find it in their Website, call them at toll free #: 855-268-8008 and they will find it for you. Sounds good right? Now, I choose the Women's Deluxe Hooded Gown Costume because I like the colors of red and black; the hood is huge, and the sleeves is intriguing. This costume is in the selection under gothic seductress ensemble.
The costume is a floor length black robe with red accents. It is actually long for my height but, I did alter the seams. The robe has an attached black hood with red lining and it has long tight black sleeves that extended at the elbow and into giant bells. It is very comfortable to wear and it fits well on me.

The long sleeves have red lining and the color adds an extra flair that is why I said, it is intriguing. The red center panel of this costume will definitely makes a woman look sexy because of the style. It shows the body curves especially when the lace is tightened.

When I posted this picture in my Facebook, a friend says I am the mistress of darkness, LOL. Well, this costume is versatile indeed because this could be a vampire costume, a witch or any other sexy beast that you want to pretend and it all depends on you. I recommend this product because it is quality made and affordable. Visit the link now and check out their costumes. Don't forget to follow them in twitter @WHCostumes.

Marceline Missouri: Walt Disney's Boyhood Town

We are supposed to visit Hannibal, Missouri which is the boyhood town of Mark Twain. We ran out of time and I was so disappointed. While looking for a German Restaurant in the area, my sister-in-law pointed the clock and the street sign which says Main Street USA. I asked why there are Disney signs in this town? Then, I was told and just knew that Marceline, Missouri is the boyhood town of Walt Disney. This town has influenced him a lot in fact; I saw his barn and his Dreaming Tree. The picture below is the Main Street USA in Marceline Missouri, the inspiration of Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom. Amazing! This road trip is very interesting. I am glad we came here in Marceline.

Lilly the Ladybug From

As a blogger, one of the activities that I did this month was sending a pitch letter to companies. I made 15 pitch letters and all companies replied positive. I was overwhelmed! First product that arrived on our doorstep was from and boy, I am like a child. I was thrilled and loving their stuff toy. What was surprising for me was their stuff toys have a dual purpose. It is a toy and a blanket. Moms and dads, you should get this toy for your children. See the face of my niece? She was so happy isn't she? She lives in U.K. and because she is doing well in school, I thought Lily the Ladybug is a good companion when she is doing a homework.

I am a child at heart and a stuff toy like this truly melts my heart. Look at the face of Lily the Ladybug, isn't it cute? Much as I wanted to keep this for myself, there is a pretty face in UK who is waiting for Lily's arrival hehehe. I am so glad that I send Lily to her because look at that angelic face, I can almost hear her giggling and laughing. You bring so much joy Lily the ladybug (wink).

Would I recommend this item? Sure! If you want to buy any product at, you will get a 20% discount if you use the code: Parenthood. Check out my review and giveaway post of Lily the Ladybug: HERE. Thanks for stopping by.

Halloween Costumes That You Would Love

For the sake of the Halloween Celebration this month, here are some of the Halloween Costumes that I find interesting to wear. Take your pick if you have no idea what to wear on your Halloween Party. Check out these costumes:
I went to two Halloween Parties by the neighborhood of our friend and they invited us in and was blown away by their funky costumes.
Here are some of the cutest "trick-or-treat'ers" in the neighborhood.
They were with their parents. Remember to always accompany your children when they went out for trick or treat just a safety precaution you know. Anyway, it was really fun seeing these kids in costumes.

Here are some cool costumes of pretty young ladies. If you hate make-up then, this will work for you. You don't need to buy fancy dresses if your budget is tight this year. Alter your old worn out clothing and make your own style for Halloween.
Here's more... a white and black clothing plus a little red face paint sure is a big hit in the zoombie land.
We were busy that time so; taking pictures one by one is hard work LOL. They want the treats hehehe. I have to take charge of the treats because if they take more, the ghosts might follow them home.
Some trick or treaters were still able to smile at my camera lol ... pretty.
 Now, wearing a masks is the most easiest thing to wear isn't it? No hassle of make-up and just dark clothing. The angel of death is really scary huh? I think they were less than 4 years old and their parents were assisting them because the masks kept falling hahaha. Here is another cute little face ... just a little powder on the face and he got treats as well hehehe.  Oh, the incredible hulk cannot handle his huge body hehehe. His masks fall many times and he can't see LOL.
So; that's all for now folks. I will dig some more if I can find any more costumes in my folder. I got tons of them. This year is the exciting one and I will have my costume too. Just come by to see it next time. Thanks for visiting.
